Regarding your second question - did the work (16 hours) get done by one resource or was it only 8 hours of work? For the resource who did not work on the task, set the remaining work to zero. I would use the Task Form in the lower pane formatted to show Work.
Hi Julie,

Thanks for your response.

For question no 1, I tried your advice, but I cannot modify the Actual Overtime field (shown in the print-screen in the attachment). I am trying to show for the task named Sub-task, in which the baseline is 2 persons (8 hours/person) with no planned overtime, the task can be completed with only 1 person but he required 12 hours, which will mean 4 hours overtime. I think this is a common issue in any project e.g. not enough time to complete a mission critical task, therefore need to take a few hours overtime to complete it.
Any help?

For question no 2, it works (as shown in the print-screen). Thanks a lot!!
